Fender Custom Shop 50s Thinline Tele Journeyman Relic - Super Faded Aged Aztec Gold

The Thinline Telecasters are a range in a realm of their own, and this 50s Super Faded Aztec gold model may be the cream of the crop. A hollow ash body is covered in a lacquer finish that is Journeyman relic’d and features a Broadcaster style bridge pickup and Texas Special in the neck, both of which are hand wound. 

The guitar is very bright, but no less usable, as the DI is a tone in its own right. The response is balanced, compressed and even. Standard volume and tone pots control your output via Fat 50’s Tele Wiring, while a single three way switch toggles between pickups.
